I’ve been married for a year now and am happy to say that I have come a long way from being an “inutile” to a, well, (close to) proficient housekeeper. My husband says he is proud of my cooking. I am also amazed at my newly- discovered “cooking abilities”. And ironing is no longer that difficult. It helps, too, that we have the first-world amenities like the dishwasher, washing machine and dryer, microwave, electric this and electric that. They help make my work lighter, easier and faster.
One must have first-hand experience in order to fully understand the value of a housewife’s role. It is not simple- but then, if you do it because of love, it does not become a chore but an act of love. My husband wants to hire back his cleaning lady but I am adamantly against it because I think it's just a waste of money. Housework is so simple and everybody can do it if we set our hearts to it.
